If we asked a thousand Lauren Alaina fans what they loved most about their favorite country star, we’d get a thousand different answers. There are just that many things to adore about this Georgia sweetheart. One of our favorite things, though, is the way she treats her fans. But one small fan recently got a little extra love from Lauren.


At her show in South Bend, Indiana, last weekend, Lauren participated in local radio station B100’s birthday party. Radio events typically include an opportunity for country fans to meet an entertainer, and this one was no different.

According to the South Bend Tribune, at the front of the meet-and-greet line was seven-year-old AJ Hillebrand, who was born blind. And when Lauren saw him, she dropped to her knees in front of the young boy and put his hands on her face.

AJ’s mother, Heather, told the Tribune, “She was so amazing I didn’t say anything about him not being able to see. She just walked out and knelt down in front of him and grabbed his hands and put them on her face, not caring what her makeup looked like or nothing. She just grabbed him so he could put his hands all over her face and see her.”

Tissue, please.

Heather continued, “She was like ‘Do you feel my smiling? I’m smiling just for you.’ And then she was like, ‘Can I sign your heart?’ So she signed his shirt over his heart.”

Mom shared photos of her little boy and the country star on her Facebook page and wrote, “She is amazing. I didn’t even have to tell her he was blind. She already knew and signed his heart.”

A thousand and one reasons …
